Hi, I was in the plasma screen forum and found the folks there EXTREMELY helpful in helping me decide on a plasma screen TV. I went ahead with the 50" Panasonic plasma screen TV from this year. Now I need to find a matching set of speakers and a receiver to complete the minimum requirements of my home theater system. I have had a lot of brandnames thrown at me from local stores, but I never trust local stores because they will obviously push their own products. I'd much rather come to forums like this and ask the more knowledgeable and unbiased folk here. I am a pretty clean slate. I've done a lot of reseach but I don't think I've even scratched the surface as to what brands would be a nice top end for speakers and receivers to complement my new plasma screen TV. I would really appreciate some help from you guys here. Throw me some brandnames and pros/cons. What I am looking for is for an apartment, so I was thinking more along the lines of those long skinny speakers or the tall metal legs with the little cube speakers on the top. I hear that even those tiny speakers can pack a powerful punch compared to some of the large box speaker systems. Thank you for your help in advance.
